Son Heung-min pens new five-year Spurs contract

Son Heung-min pens new five-year Spurs contract

Lamela joins other Spurs players such as Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min in signing new deals at the club this summer.

His tireless work ethic has endeared him to the Spurs faithful as well as with his manager Mauricio Pochettino and has been an ever-present last term.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Erik Lamela has said that he is hopeful of remaining injury-free next season after committing his future to the club.

Popular attacker Son, who scored twice for South Korea at the World Cup, will also be staying at the club after securing a new contract until 2023.

The 26-year-old Argentina winger joined Spurs from Roma in 2013 and has scored 23 goals in 154 appearances for the Premier League club.

Lamela was sidelined for more than a year after suffering a hip problem on 2016, returning to action on November 28 last year as a late substitute in the 2-1 defeat at Leicester.

There's a big season ahead for last year's second-placed side in the Premier League Tottenham and they've managed to tie down two first team squad players to long-term contracts.

He'll be part of the 23 man squad which will represent his country but before he travels to Indonesia, he'll fly out to the United States with Tottenham to compete in friendlies against Roma, Barcelona and Milan.

The 26-year-old was given three weeks off after the tournament in Russian Federation as South Korea went out at the stage, with Son scoring twice in three games.

'I am delighted to sign my new contract, ' he said.
